Nikki Reed starred in the “Twilight” movie franchise. She said once the first movie came out, it was challenging to have so many new fans all at once on social media. She had to navigate suddenly becoming a role model to thousands upon thousands of young people. Today, she says, she wants to leverage her followers to make a positive impact on the world.
“It’s not just about walking the walk or talking the talk, it’s about creating real change,” Reed said during a Fusion RiseUp panel where she was a guest speaker. “And not just through an example that’s a statement, but actually going out there and being proactive.”
